Today, we’re excited to share something truly special with you – a project that’s not just close to our hearts but also crucial for fostering a more equitable and sustainable world. We’re talking about Alt Shift 2024, a unique degrowth festival that’s been making waves and now needs your support to paradoxically grow even further.
What is Alt Shift?
Alt Shift is more than just a festival; it’s a movement. Organized by Shift Slow, a youth-led organization passionate about post-growth and degrowth futures, Alt Shift is an annual event that brings together creative minds to explore eco-social strategies and post-growth cultures. It’s a festival where learning, sharing, and community building go hand in hand with fun and emotional engagement.
The Journey So Far:
Over the past editions, Alt Shift has blossomed into a vibrant community. Set against the serene backdrop of the Austrian woods, the festival has been a space for experimental and playful learning, featuring workshops, concerts, theatre performances, and much more. It’s a place where ideas flourish and connections are made, all in the spirit of building a sustainable future.
The Vision for Alt Shift 2024:
The next edition of Alt Shift is set to be even more impactful. The focus is on building alliances beyond the degrowth movement, integrating diverse perspectives from eco-socialist, social justice, and other allied movements. This is where we need your help. To make Alt Shift 2024 a melting pot of ideas and a truly inclusive event, we’re facing financial hurdles that we aim to overcome with your support.
To enhance the accessibility and quality of the festival, we’ve launched a crowdfunding campaign with the goal of raising 5,000 euros by the end of December 2023. These funds are crucial for compensating workshop facilitators from diverse movements fairly and covering the festival costs for participants coming from marginalized communities. Every contribution brings us a step closer to a festival that’s not only enriching but also inclusive and diverse.
